What is the best time of year to visit China?

Any time of the year is a good time to visit China, but some times are better than others.

If you will be traveling without children, the months from February to June, September and November are good times to visit the China. You’ll find attractions that are generally less crowded, though you can expect to find crowds any day of the year at the most popular attractions, such as the Forbidden City in Beijing and the Terracotta Amy in Xi‘an.

Spring is a wonderful time to visit China. In the north, grass and trees are greening up after a cold winter. Fruit trees are in blossom, presenting picture postcard-perfect photo opportunities. Temperatures are still mild, making touring a comfortable situation.

September is just as nice, as temperatures are cooling down after the hot summer, and trees are turning from green to brilliant shades of red, yellow and orange. Temperatures continue getting cold into November, but don’t reach the chilling temps that December and January bring to the North. November is a great time to visit tropical South China where Sanya is known as the Hawaii of China.

Just as there are good times to travel in China, there are some times you want to avoid, as well. These are times when the Chinese hit the road in mass, grabbing up accommodations and transportation seats by the millions.

One time is the first two weeks of October when China celebrates National Day, which is October 1. This is the equivalent to the Fourth of July celebrations in the United States. The Chinese use the time off as extra vacation, and travel all around their country. If you happen to be in Beijing over this holiday, head to Tiananmen Square to see the extravagant floral displays commemorating the founding of the People’s Republic of China..

Chinese New Year, known as Spring Festival or Lunar New Year in China, is also not a good time to travel. Even more Chinese take to the roads and air than during the October celebration. This holiday is the equivalent of our Christmas holidays as Chinese return home to be with their families just as we do. The date of the holiday fluctuates annually, but is usually in January or February. If you don’t mind crowds, this can be a fun time to visit, as temple fairs, which are like carnivals, are very entertaining. Plus, if you’re a snacker, some treats are only fixed during this holiday.

Whatever time you go, be sure to dress for the weather. This means cool clothes in the summer, heavy coats in the winter, and layered clothing that can be removed or added as the day progresses during the shoulder season
